Teacher Transfer Window For 2020/2021 Academic Year Opened. More Details

The management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) has opened the transfer window for teachers for the 2020/ 2021 academic year. It will officially commence on Monday, 24th May 2021 in all parts of the country.

The purpose is to allow in-service teachers to change their current station to new one. Mostly, teachers who have spent four years (4) and above are those qualified. 

Many circumstances call for teacher transfer between regions and districts. The teacher would have to give a convincing reason why he prefers to change his current station. Where necessary, evidence must be provided to substantiate your points.

Take note that, all applicants are required to complete their release documents before submitting to your district office. For example, if you want to move to district B, you are required to write a letter to District B for assurance.  

The assurance in simple terms means the district has accepted you. Thereafter, you write a release letter to your present district asking them to let you go.
